NTMN October Chapter Meeting – A Deep Dive into the North Texas Ecotone and its Natural Wonders
Wednesday, October 4, 2023 | 7pm-830pm (social/camera roll begins at 630pm)
Chapter member and author, Amy Martin, shares the fun yet nerdy naturalist material from her new book Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth.
Why is North Texas an epic ecotone? What is the Great Trinity Forest the easternmost example of? How do tilted layers of bedrock shape our three ecoregions, foster a plethora of soil types, and lead to our plant and wildlife diversity?
From the ancient inland ocean and melting ice caps that forged North Texas, to the goliath creeks and many forks of the Trinity, get clear on how water shapes our local landscape. Discover places to experience these tenets firsthand. Enjoy astounding photography by skilled naturalists of hardwood bottomland forests and Eastern Cross Timbers, soaring limestone escarpments, lush wetlands, and rare remnants of Blackland and Fort Worth Prairies. Get to know a diverse community of volunteers working for nature.
Location: Dallas College Brookhaven Campus, Building H, Room 125, 3939 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, TX 75244
